Technical Note: Second Harmonic Generation Microscopy with the RMS1000 Confocal Microscope

In this technical note we discuss how the RMS1000 confocal microscope can be configured for second harmonic generation imaging.


Technical Note: Two-Photon Fluorescence Microscopy with the RMS1000 Confocal Microscope

Discover how the RMS1000 can be configured for spectral and time-resolved two-photon fluorescence imaging in this technical note.


Ramacle® Software Highlight: Fast Mapping

Fast Mapping in Ramacle® enables the user to acquire Raman maps with significantly reduced acquisition times via more efficient stage movement. This Software Highlight details how it works and when the user should use it to decrease mapping times.


Ramacle® Software Highlight: Surface Mapping

This Ramacle® Software Highlight focuses on Surface Mapping detailing why it is a necessary feature and how it works. Surface Mapping allows the user to analyse tricky, uneven sample types.


Technical Note: Fluorescence Microscopy with the FS5 Spectrofluorometer

Fluorescence microscopy is an imaging technique that uses fluorescence, either by intrinsic emission or artificially added fluorophores, to provide contrast to microscope images. This technical note shows how a fluorescence images along with emission spectra and lifetime decays, can be acquired using an Edinburgh Instruments FS5 Spectrofluorometer with the microscope add-on.


Technical Note: Grating Selection for Raman Spectroscopy

What is the best grating for your Raman spectrometer? Read this technical note to find out! The application team investigates a range of excitation wavelengths, and 5 different gratings to provide an insight into grating selection.


Technical Note: Choosing Laser and LED Sources for Time-Resolved Photoluminescence Experiments

As photoluminescence (PL) research evolves, so does the demand for sensitive instrumentation to measure increasingly weak PL signals. Besides photon-counting detectors and monochromators with good stray light rejection, the source used to excite the sample is a key component to consider when designing an experiment.


Technical Note: Measuring Fluorescence and Phosphorescence Spectra at Low Temperature Using the FLS1000 Photoluminescence Spectrometer

In this technical note, an Edinburgh Instruments FLS1000 Photoluminescence Spectrometer was used to acquire the fluorescence and phosphorescence spectra of a fluorescent emitter at 100 K.


Technical Note: Avoiding Dead Time Losses with Reverse Mode TCSPC in the FLS1000

Time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC) is the method of choice for measuring fluorescence lifetimes due to its excellent time-resolution. TCSPC can be thought of as a very fast stopwatch with two inputs (Figure 1)...


Technical Note: LP980 Transient Absorption Spectrometer Diffuse Reflection Accessory; Alignment and Example Measurements of Benzil Powder

This Technical Note is written to show customers how to properly align and measure solid samples using the LP980 Transient Absorption Spectrometer when equipped with the diffuse reflection accessory.
